Guess what folks? The Diamond Doula has her third little gem on the way!! I am in my third trimester and expect the little one to make HIS appearance around Halloween give or take a few weeks.
This pregnancy has been a bit of a doozy. I was very sick for the first 14 weeks, much sicker than with my other two pregnancies. Once I came out of that, we experienced a death in the family that rocked my world. This wee one has been through quite a lot and is yet to see the light of day. For this reason, I know he will be a special boy and will bring only wonderful things to our family and the world.
I am happy to say that I have been working as a doula throughout my pregnancy. In fact, I have 1 client left waiting to deliver any day now. I can just hear the hospital staff now with all the, 'which one of you is here to have the baby today?' jokes... Despite the regular third trimester stuff like occasional back pain, tiredness and general discomfort, I feel ready to assist this first time mom with the arrival of her little diamond.
I will be taking a maternity leave from doula work until approximately February 1, but I will keep you all up to date with the specifics of that as the time draws closer.
In the meantime, wish me luck with my special delivery. And yes, I will have a doula. No other than the OG, DOULA1 license plate holder herself, my mom, Mary Weiss Fauls. I hope she'll give me a discount...
